Biking around with a Full Metal Jacket

So maybe the title is a bit misleading, but if you haven’t been diligently following this blog (we have RSS!) you might not have seen the post we put up about the bike ride led by Actor Matthew Modine (of 'Full Metal Jacket' and 'Weeds' fame) at the DNC. Matt Modine is a vocal biking advocate and we captured some great footage of him Freewheelin around on one of our Treks. It was really good to see someone using their celebrity to promote a great cause—biking, health, and environmental preservation.

So today I was cruising around on youtube, looking for clips of Mr. Modine at some sort of speaking engagement so that I could see if I could learn to mimic his voice for an upcoming video I’m making about the story Freewheelin in the world of Web 2.0 (in case you didn’t know, Matt Modine heard about Freewheelin through our facebook page and we used the blog, twitter feed, and facebook wall to promote his guided ride).

Lo and behold, I happened upon a video of him riding around on freewheelin bikes….a video that we didn’t make! I got very excited and wondered why we hadn’t heard about this video before. I wanted to blog right away! When I checked my gmail though, I found that the creator of the video had already emailed us and asked us to blog about it! So without further adieu, here is Matthew Modine in his latest smash hit, “Matthew Modine Bicycle for a Day at DNC.”

PS: The video can also be found on youtube here, where you should comment and rate it:
